Directions for Use

Application Type: Plunge Dip, Hand spray or Spray Race

Plunge Dipping

Should be applied with stabilizer

Each Triatix 2L added requires a 6-kg lime bag to be sprinkled onto the water at the end of each dipping.

Filling Rate (initial fill):

  • 1 pack (2 liters) Triatix per 1000 litres of water in the tank.
  • Open all the 2-liter containers and empty into a bucket.
  • Pre-cream with an equal volume of water before mixing with bulk water in the tank.
  • Pour into the dip tank from end to end.
  • Dip at least 25 head to agitate.
  • Mix the wash and return these to the collecting pen for re-dipping.
  • This procedure should be performed at the start of each day’s dipping in a full-strength wash.

Replenishment

There are 2 methods:

Either

  1. Coopers Head Count System (HCS) of Replenishment
  • A single 2-liter Triatix is added for every 250 head dipped.
  • Replenishment should take place at the end of the dipping or after 500 cattle dipped – whichever comes first.
  • The required volume of concentrate is pre-creamed and added to the dip wash, and the stabilizer sprinkled onto the surface of the dip wash.
  • Top up the tank to the full mark with water immediately prior to the next dipping.
  • For convenience and accuracy use the Triatix Record Sheet.
  • This method is strongly recommended as it maintains the dip wash at the correct concentrate and therefore dip wash analysis is seldom required.

Or

  1. Conventional Method of Replenishment
  • A single 2-liter Triatix is to be added for every 600 litres of water added to the dip tank.
  • Mix as described under Filling Rate.
  • At the end of the day’s dipping sprinkle all the packs of stabilizer from the open packs onto the dip wash surface.
  • Do not agitate.

Handspraying (Ruminants & Pigs)

Dilution Rate:           1:500

16L Knapsack:         Mix 16L of water with 32ml of Triatix.

Spray Race

Initial filling rate: 1: 500

  • Fill spray race sump with 400 litres of water plus 2.5 litres for every animal to be sprayed.
  • Pre-cream concentrate with an equal volume of water before mixing with bulk water in the sump.
  • Always prepare fresh wash for each day’s spraying.

Boost rate:

  • Add 250ml of Triatix for every 100 head through the spray race.
  • Under heavy tick challenge clip hair from ears and tail brushes to assist wetting.
